Midokura Announces General Availability of Disruptive Network Virtualization Technology

Global Startup Unveils GA Version of MidoNet, an Overlay-Based Network Virtualization Solution for IaaS

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2013) - OpenStack Summit -- Midokura, a global startup focused on network virtualization, today announced the general availability of MidoNet.

MidoNet virtualizes the network stack for cloud platforms, such as OpenStack. First introduced last Fall to the U.S. market, this solution has been in development for three years. MidoNet is a distributed, decentralized, multi-layer software-defined virtual network solution specifically designed for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Midokura's approach not only adds automation that significantly reduces the human cost (OPEX) of managing the network, but also impacts the overall economics of cloud computing (CAPEX) by simplifying network requirements.

"We are excited to disrupt the market and offer the industry general access to our MidoNet network virtualization technology," said Dan Mihai Dumitriu, co-founder and CEO of Midokura. "Unlike other solutions out there, MidoNet pushes intelligence to the edge of the network, as it takes an overlay-based approach to network virtualization and sits on top of any IP-connected network. Given this, MidoNet makes it easier for enterprises to build fully featured, secure and scalable clouds."

Midokura is a proud member of the OpenStack community, a global collaboration of developers and cloud computing technologists producing an open source cloud computing platform for public and private clouds. Midokura is a sponsor, exhibitor and presenter at this week's OpenStack Summit, running April 15 - 18, 2013, in Portland, Oregon.

Midokura will be demonstrating the capabilities of MidoNet at the OpenStack Demo Theater on Wednesday, April 17, at 1:00 pm PT.
